Speaking God’s Word about…
—PSALM 37:8 (THE MESSAGE)
I will bridle my anger, trash my wrath, cool my pipes—it only makes things worse.
I follow the example of the Lord, who is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and plenteous in mercy and loving-kindness.
I am slow to anger and have great understanding; I am not like he who is hasty of spirit, exposing and exalting his folly.
I speak soft answers that turn away wrath, not grievous words that stir up anger.
I am not a hot-tempered person who stirs up strife, but I am slow to anger, appeasing contention.
Good sense makes me restrain my anger, and it is my glory to overlook a transgression or an offense.
I am not quick in spirit to be angry or vexed, for anger and vexation lodge in the bosom of fools.
When I am angry, I do not sin or let my wrath (my exasperation, my fury or indignation) last until the sun goes down.
I will let all bitterness and indignation and wrath (passion, rage, bad temper) and resentment (anger, animosity) and quarreling (brawling, clamor, contention) and slander (evil-speaking, abusive or blasphemous language) be banished from me, with all malice (spite, ill will, or baseness of any kind). And I will become useful and helpful and kind to others, tenderhearted (compassionate, understanding, loving-hearted), forgiving others [readily and freely], as God in Christ forgave me.
—COLOSSIANS 3:8 (GNT)
Now I must get rid of all these things: anger, passion, and hateful feelings. No insults or obscene talk must ever come from my lips.
—JAMES 1:19-20 (TLB)
I won’t forget that it is best to listen much, speak little, and not become angry; for anger doesn’t make me good, as God demands that I must be.
Now I know that the Lord saves His anointed; He will answer me from His holy heaven with the saving strength of His right hand.
You anoint my head with oil; my [brimming] cup runs over.
I love righteousness, uprightness, and right standing with God and hate wickedness; therefore God, My God, has anointed me with the oil of gladness.
My horn (emblem of excessive strength and stately grace) You have exalted; I am anointed with fresh oil.
—ISAIAH 10:27 (KJV)
And it shall come to pass in that day, that his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing.
—ISAIAH 61:1 (TLB)
The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the suffering and afflicted. He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted, to announce liberty to captives, and to open the eyes of the blind.
Like Jesus’ disciples, I am called to drive out many unclean spirits and anoint with oil many who are sick and cure them.
—2 CORINTHIANS 1:21
It is God Who confirms and makes me steadfast and establishes me in Christ, and has consecrated and anointed me [enduing me with the gifts of the Holy Spirit].
—1 JOHN 2:20
I have been anointed by the Holy one, and I know [the Truth].
—1 JOHN 2:27
But as for me, the anointing (the sacred appointment, the unction) which I received from Him abides [permanently] in me; [so] then I have no need that anyone should instruct me. But just as His anointing teaches me concerning everything and is true and is no falsehood, so I must abide in (live in, never depart from) Him [being rooted in Him, knit to Him], just as [His anointing] has taught me [to do].
Anxiety and Worry
I am strong, courageous, and firm; I fear not and am not in terror, for it is the Lord my God Who goes with me; He will not fail me or forsake me.
—PSALM 86:7 (NIV)
In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
—PSALM 139:23-24 (NKJV)
Search me, O God, and know my heart; try me, and know my anxieties; and see if there is any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.
All the days of the desponding and afflicted are made evil [by anxious thoughts and forebodings], but I have a glad heart and a continual feast [regardless of circumstances].
My worrying and being anxious will not add one unit of measure (cubit) to my stature or to the span of my life.
—MATTHEW 6:31, 33
I will not worry and be anxious, saying, What am I going to eat? or, What am I going to drink? or, What am I going to wear?… But I will seek (aim at and strive after) first of all His kingdom and His righteousness (His way of doing and being right), and then all these things taken together will be given me besides.
I will not worry or be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will have worries and anxieties of its own. Sufficient for each day is its own trouble.
—MARK 4:19 (NIV)
I will not let the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
—PHILIPPIANS 4:6-7 (NIV)
I am not anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, I present my requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, guards my heart and my mind in Christ Jesus.
—1 PETER 5:7
I cast the whole of my care [all my anxieties, all my worries, all my concerns, once and for all] on Him, for He cares for me affectionately and cares about me watchfully.
Authority of the Believer
I bind the strongman and I am able to rob his kingdom.
As a disciple of Christ I have the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever I bind on earth is bound and whatever I loose is loosed.
Jesus has all authority and power in heaven and in earth and whatever is His is also mine. He gives me authority to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
I am a believer and these signs follow me: In Jesus’ name I drive out demons; speak in new languages; pick up serpents (deal with demonic powers); and [even] if I drink anything deadly, it will not hurt me; I lay my hands on the sick, and they recover.
God has given me authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm me.
—EPHESIANS 1:20-22, 2:6 (NKJV)
Christ is seated in heavenly places and I am seated in Him. He is above all principalities and powers and all things are under His feet.
—JAMES 4:7 (NKJV)
I submit myself to God, I resist the devil and He must flee.
—EXODUS 34:12 (TLB)
I am very, very careful never to compromise with the people around me and I do not follow their evil ways.
I am blessed, happy, fortunate, prosperous, and to be envied because I walk and live not in the counsel of the ungodly [following their advice, their plans and purposes], nor do I stand [submissive and inactive] in the path where sinners walk, nor sit down [to relax and rest] where the scornful [and the mockers] gather.
—PSALM 119:2-3 (TLB)
I search for God and always do His will, rejecting compromise with evil and walking only in His paths.
I am a righteous person who does not yield, fall down or compromise my integrity before the wicked.
I live before God, doing my duty with a perfectly good conscience.
—1 TIMOTHY 3:9
I possess the mystic secret of the faith [Christian truth as hidden from ungodly men] with a clear conscience.
I prefer to suffer the hardships of the people of God rather than to have the fleeting enjoyment of a sinful life.
—1 PETER 2:9
I am a member of a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a dedicated nation, [God’s] own purchased, special person, that I may set forth the wonderful deeds and display the virtues and perfections of Him Who called me out of darkness into His marvelous light.
For what great nation is there who has a god so near to them as the Lord our God is to us in all things for which we call upon Him?
—2 CHRONICLES 7:14
I am one of God’s chosen people. I am called by His name. If I humble myself, pray, seek, crave, and require of necessity the face of God and turn from my wicked ways, then will God hear from heaven, forgive my sin, and heal my land.
I pray for the peace of Jerusalem! May they prosper who love you [the Holy City]! May peace be within your walls and prosperity within your palaces!
By the blessing of the influence of the upright and God’s favor [because of them] the city is exalted, but it is overthrown by the mouth of the wicked.
I [reverently] fear the Lord and the king, and do not associate with those who are given to change [of allegiance, and are revolutionary].
I keep the law [of God and man], and I am wise.
—JEREMIAH 29:7 (NIV)
I seek peace and prosperity for my city. I pray to the Lord for it, because the Lord Almighty says that if it prospers, I too prosper.
I pay to my government the things that are due to my government, and I pay to God the things that are due to God.
I am loyally subject to the governing (civil) authorities. For there is no authority except from God [by His permission, His sanction], and those that exist do so by God’s appointment.
—ROMANS 13:7 (NIV)
I give everyone what I owe him: If I owe taxes, I pay taxes; if revenue, then revenue; if respect, then respect; if honor, then honor.
—1 TIMOTHY 2:1-3
I offer petitions, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings on behalf of all men, for kings and all who are in positions of authority or high responsibility, that [outwardly] I may pass a quiet and undisturbed life [and inwardly] a peaceable one in all godliness and reverence and seriousness in every way. For such [praying] is good and right, and [it is] pleasing and acceptable to God my Savior.
—TITUS 3:1-2 (NIV)
I am subject to rulers and authorities, obedient, ready to do whatever is good. I slander no one, I am peaceable and considerate, and I show true humility toward all men.
—1 PETER 2:13-17 (THE MESSAGE)
I make the Master proud of me by being a good citizen. I respect the authorities, whatever their level; they are God’s emissaries for keeping order. It is God’s will that by doing good, I might cure the ignorance of the fools who think I’m a danger to society. I exercise my freedom by serving God, not by breaking the rules. I treat everyone I meet with dignity. I love my spiritual family, revere God, and respect the government.
Confessions for Husbands
—JOSHUA 24:15 (KJV)
As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.
—PROVERBS 3:3 (NIV)
Love and faithfulness never leave me; I bind them around my neck. I write them on the tablet of my heart.
I will live joyfully with the wife whom I love all the days of my life which He has given me under the sun.
From the beginning of creation God made male and female. For this reason I have left [behind] my father and my mother and am joined to my wife and cleave closely to her permanently, and we two have become one flesh, so that we are no longer two, but one flesh. What therefore God has united (joined together), no man will separate or divide.
I am not mean, bad-tempered and angry. I will not quarrel and say harsh words. These things should have no place in my life. I am kind to my wife, tenderhearted, forgiving, just as God has forgiven me because I belong to Christ.
—EPHESIANS 5:25-28 (TLB)
I show the same kind of love to my wife as Christ showed to the church when He died for her, to make her holy and clean, washed by baptism and God’s Word; so that He could give her to Himself as a glorious church without a single spot or wrinkle or any other blemish, being holy and without a single fault. That is how husbands should treat their wives, loving them as parts of themselves. For since a man and his wife are now one, a man is really doing himself a favor and loving himself when he loves his wife!
—COLOSSIANS 3:8-10, 12-14
I put away and rid myself [completely] of all these things: anger, rage, bad feeling toward my wife, curses and slander, and foulmouthed abuse and shameful utterances from my lips! I do not lie, for I have stripped off the old (unregenerate) self with its evil practices, and have clothed myself as God’s own chosen one…. (His own picked representative), [who is] purified and holy and well-beloved [by God Himself, by putting on behavior marked by] tenderhearted pity and mercy, kind feeling, a lowly opinion of myself, gentle ways, [and] patience [which is tireless and long-suffering, and has the power to endure whatever comes, with good temper]. I am gentle and forbearing, readily pardoning others; even as the Lord has [freely] forgiven me. And above all these [I put on] love and enfold myself and my wife with the bond of perfectness [which binds everything together completely in ideal harmony].
—HEBREWS 13:4 (NLT)
I give honor to [my] marriage, and remain faithful to my wife in marriage.
—JAMES 5:16 (KJV)
I confess my faults to my wife, and we pray for one another, that we may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
—1 PETER 3:7 (NLT)
I give honor to my wife. I treat her with understanding as we live together. She may be weaker than I am, but she is my equal partner in God’s gift of new life. If I don’t treat her as I should, my prayers will not be heard.
Confessions for Wives
—PROVERBS 12:4 (NKJV)
An excellent wife is the crown of her husband. I am an excellent wife.
—PROVERBS 19:14 (KJV)
House and riches are the inheritance of fathers and a prudent wife is from the Lord. I am a prudent wife.
